Competition for the New York Municipal Building, 1888-1907
I found these drawings on Archimaps, and I haven't been able to find out anything more about them, so I don't know which competition they were part of. But I love the alternative universes they conjure up. Below is the eventual winner, by William M. Kendall of McKim, Mead and White; construction of this started in 1907 and was completed in 1914.
